26 REPORT OF THE OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



Report of the Overseers of the Poor. 



The expenses of the Out Door Poor have been larger thi 
usual, owing to the increase in number and the large amount 
sickness. 

For a financial statement of the affairs connected with tb 
subject, we would refer to Selectmen's Report. 

The Schedule of Property at the Town Farm, as will be see 
from the account of the same, is $393.41 less than last yes 
We have appraised all the property at the Farm at what v 
considered a fair cash value. This depreciation is owing to ov 
valuation heretofore of articles. There has been an increase 
three inmates during the past year. The buildings are in bett 
condition than they have been for years. 

In concluding this report, we would commend the keeper 
Mr. Milton Libby and wife for their faithfulness and efficient 
with which they have managed the affairs of the farm ar 
household, and for the care and kindness to those who ha^ 
been under their charge.

Report of Supervisor of Schools. 

FOR THE YEAR 1885-86. 

Deering, Me., Feb. 16, 1886. 
Fellow Citizens of Deering : 

I beg leave to submit the following report : 

Some changes have been made in our schools during the 
year. A new room has been added to our list since last Spring. 
One more teacher than usual has been employed throughout the 
year, namely, at Lunt's Corner for two terms. The result of 
this change has fully justified the recommendations. An assist- 
ant was placed at Libby's Corner during the summer term. It 
is thought to have been a good investment. In all cases the 
different portions of the town (or such parts as could be reach- 
ed) have been consulted in regard to employment of particular 
teachers, and it may be said, the hearty co-operation of the 
parents has been gratefully received. 

Experienced teachers are needed and have been employed in 
our largest schools, and the same may be said as to the needs of 
all of our schools. 

It can be truly said that all of our teachers have put forth 
their best endeavors to make their respective school profitable, 
and they have met with success in most cases. 

Some defects in our system may well be spoken of here : 
Some of the rooms are too much crowded during some parts of 
the school year, soon some of them must be relieved and it is to 
be earnestly hoped that some action will be taken about pro- 
viding a room on the second floor of the school house at Deer- 
ing Centre ; threefold benefit would be derived thereby. The 
over crowded house at Woodford's can be somewhat relieved. 
The same may be said of Morrill's, and the citizens of Deering 
Centre can have a school room at or nearer home. This is an 
important move in the right direction. 



30 REPORT OF SUPERVISOR. 

Some special instructions have been introduced into our coi 
mon schools and the teachers have nobly responded. Our sj 
tern here, as elsewhere, needs pruning, as the progress of the a; 
demands ; on the whole we cannot be too careful, parenl 
teachers and school officers, lest our schools drift away from tl 
practical elements that are so necessary to scholars whose schc 
benefits are limited. 

Our High School is in a flourishing condition. Considerat 
exp&ise was incurred by being obliged to purchase twenty ne 
desks and to furnish a room with settees ; the desks were pr 
cured through the agency of Loring, Short & Harmon, and 
makes a large item of expense. We were unprepared for tl 
because unexpected at the time money was raised for the Hi^ 
School. An extra assistant was needed and obtained witho 
special provisions therefor. It seems that we shall not overri 
our appropriations. If a better preparation be given in t 
Grammar School for entrance to the High School, a better a 
preciation of the work in the High School would be obtained. 

A list of teachers and their wages per month ; attendance 
scholars ; number registered ; also the usual statistics are hei 
by appended. 

The amount of money needed the coming year will depei 
upon how many extra teachers are to be employed. It w 
probably require $500 more than was appropriated last Sprir

REPORT OF WATER COMMITTEE. 41 



To the Inhabitants of Deering: 

The Committee chosen at the special town meeting held on the 27th 
of January, 1886, "to take into consideration the introduction of Sebago 
water throughout the thickly settled portions of the town for muuicipal 
purposes, domestic use, and the protection of property from fire, and 
said Committee to report at the March meeting the estimated cost of 
introducing water throughout the town, to be used for public buildings, 
school houses, watering troughs and hydrants," beg leave to report : 

Pursuant to the vote of the town under which they were chosen, 
the Committee have procured from the Portland Water Company a plan 
and proposition for carrying out the objects set forth in said vote, which 
plan and proposition are herewith submitted and made a part of this 
report. 

Under this plan and proposition, which fully set forth the whole 
matter, the hydrants would be set at an average distance apart of about 
700 feet : in the more thickly settled places 500 feet : giving, as to 
public water supply, ample protection from fire along the lines of pipe. 

In this proposition everything seems to your Committee fixed and 
determined, for the term of the proposed contract. At its expiration 
the relation of the Water Company to the town, as to water supply, 
is undetermined. 

Your Committee would recommend that should the town not accept 
the proposition of the Water Company, the Selectmen be authorized to 
place hydrants at such points on the present lines of pipe, and on such 
lines as may be laid the present year, as in their judgment may be 
necessary and required to protect property from fire. 

J. S. RICKER, Chairman, 

For the Committee.

the term of fifteen years, at a annual rental of $50 for each Hydran 
per annum, for the first 50 Hydrants, and $30 per Hydrant, per annur

All Hydrants set shall become the property of said town at the expir 
tion of said fifteen years after setting. 

The Water will be supplied to Woodford's Corner through a 1

an 8 inch pipe will be extended through Ocean Street to East Deerin 
with branch pipes 6 inches in diameter on the cross streets, whei 
Hydrants are required to be set. 

From junction of Ocean Street, an 8 inch pipe will be extendi 
through Forest Avenue to foot of Pleasant Street, thence throug

rill's Corner. From Morrill's Corner a 6 inch pipe will be laid throug 
Forest Avenue to Oak Street, thence through Oak Street to Ocea

At the junction of Pearl Street and Forest Avenue, a 6 inch pi[ 
will be laid through Pearl Street to High Street, near the residence < 
J. M. Adams, thence through High Street to Spring Street, and dow

Streets, through Mechanic and Deering Streets to Forest Avenue, there 
connecting with 12 inch main, and lay in Fessenden Street a 6 inch pipe 
from Forest Avenue to Deering Street. 

Mains will be laid in such other streets where Hydrants may be lo- 
cated by said town, where there is no ledge, provided that for every 500 
feet of pipe laid, a Hydrant shall be set and paid for according to the 
terms of this contract. 

The work of laying the pipes will be carried on without any un- 
necessary inconvenience to the public, the streets to be left in good con- 
dition, to the satisfaction of the Selectmen, and will indemnify the town 
against any loss or damage that may occur by our fault, during the con- 
struction of the works. 

Second. In consideration that said town shall enter into said con- 
tract with this Company, and the payment to us of the sum agreed upon, 
as rental for said Hydrants, we will supply water free for school and 
engine houses located on the lines of our pipes, also water for three pub- 
lic drinking fountains for man and beast, the water furnished as above 
specified shall be supplied and regulated according to the rules and regu- 
lations that may be established from time to time by this Company for 
its management.

obtained, and to be completed before October 1st, 1886.
